The Woodmere Annual: 82nd Juried Exhibition


About the Exhibition

The Woodmere Annual exhibition presents the work of Philadelphia’s contemporary artists. Each year, a different juror prepares a call for artists, soliciting submissions related to a distinct theme or idea. This year’s juror, Joanne Grüne-Yanoff invited makers to submit works that reflect on the question: What is Belonging?

Artists working in sculpture, assemblage, ceramics, embroidery, painting, photography, video, mixed media, printmaking, drawing, collage, found object, and textile address the concept of belonging, illustrating the intellectual rigor and creative diversity that characterizes our city’s art community. In addition to the selected artists, a highlight of this exhibition will be a large-scale work by Joanne Grüne-Yanoff. The juror’s piece will be suspended from the two-story, rotunda gallery, resonating the theme of belonging.

Ten prizes totaling over $2,000 will be awarded by the juror to selected participating artists. Works in the exhibition will not be listed for sale. Woodmere will host an Opening Reception, which is FREE and open to the public, Saturday, June 8, 2024, from 12 NOON-4 PM. Register here.

A digital version of the catalogue can be found here.

Support for The Woodmere Annual: 82nd Juried Exhibition is provided by Harriet & Larry Weiss.


Juror bio

Joanne Grüne-Yanoff is a Swedish-American transdisciplinary artist based in Stockholm, Sweden, and Philadelphia, PA. In her practice, she examines the individual’s charged relationship with the outside world through a character she has developed, Cassandra, who stands on the ground, looking up at the sky, thinking about flight.

This exploration threads visually through her work and connects with workshops she runs with marginalized populations around the world to help build tools for finding home and community. Her installations explore connection and creative transformation as tools of resilience.
